When President Trump tweeted
Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my "wires tapped" in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!
I wonder whether Obama was pondering suing Trump for libel?
I wonder whether he thought about suing Trump as a way of bringing things out into the open?
I think Trump can be belligerent, so he would have more to say on the subject if he was pushed by the threat of a court case. He wouldn't back down and he wouldn't shut up.
It would have been quite the showdown.
But now just a couple of weeks later, things have moved on a that tweet seems like light relief compared to now.
Now, we have something more important for the voters to think about - the end of the Healthcare bill.
It is hard to know what Trump's intention is. If he gave away part of the healthcare plan he wanted in exchange for a more onerous plan but knowing that his moderate allies would oppose it, then maybe he got what he wanted - a country that can blame someone, anyone, as long as it is not he who they blame.
In other words - he didn't care about the bill, he cares about gaining more of a grassroots force that will support him.
Or maybe he is clueless - it is hard to know.
